He led a criminal enterprise from the 1970s until 1995 which included racketeering, extortion and money laundering. He is also accused of 19 murders. During much of that time he was also an FBI informant and was being protected by the FBI. After 16 years on the lam, Bulger was apprehended in California in 2011. He now faces murder charges in a trial in June. Cullen and Murphy covered Bulger for the Globe for years. Cullen was the first to raise questions about Bulger's relationship with the FBI.
